The demand for cancer care is expected to grow 40% over the next six years and ASCO is projecting a shortage of more than 2,200 oncologists by 2025. To meet the cancer care needs of patients, advanced practice providers (APPs), whose education and training is focused on health promotion, disease prevention, and primary care medical management, have increasingly been sought to fill the shortage. However, many APPs have little background or training in oncology. As a result, oncology practices need to provide new staff with an onboarding program that helps to establish a working baseline level of knowledge of hematology and oncology.
To help APPs prepare for a new career in the specialty of oncology, Horizon CME in partnership with APAO has developed “Oncology 101: A Hematology and Oncology Primer for Advanced Practice Providers”. In this one-and-a-half-day program, clinicians will gain a basic understanding of cancer therapies, benign and malignant hematologic disorders, solid malignancies, supportive care strategies, genetics and molecular testing, and more. Participation in this program will help pave the way for APPs to provide support and care to cancer patients as part of the multidisciplinary oncology care team.
